I like the game POWERMANGA. Its a spaceship shooting game with funky music. Its 2D, so your card should handle it. Check Freshmeat.

I also like XGalaga, that should have no problem either.

Do you like Frozen Bubble? That should work too.

Gnome Robots is surprisingly addictive once you learn how to gain safe teleports
Frozen Bubble and Chromium are great too

Don't listen to Proud, he only recommends VERY VERY addictive games. I'm starting to think he has a master plan of addicting EVERYONE to these linux games that you CAN"T put down so he can walk around robbing people or stealing secret intel. Hmmm.. *locks all doors and boards up windows* What you gonna do now Proud, huh, huh!?

SimCity 3000 (?). Just a guess, but I think the min request's a 4 mega video card. I don't know the minimal requests for it for sure though. Talking about min requests, I've a new cool Linux T-Shirt. It stands "The box said, it requires Win98 or better, so I've installed Linux"
